The Art of René Campbell

Artist(s) Drawing
The general art blog of René Campbell, a 20 year-old female currently residing in a little city in South Australia called Adelaide. I study Marine Biology by day, work as a bartender by night, and draw everywhere and anywhere inbetween!

I post my finished pieces of artwork and drawings, sketches, works in progress, photography and thoughts. I will also tend to reblog things that inspire me or what I enjoy. If you want to see nothing but my artwork, you can find it here or through the links below.
NOTE: I do not take commissions at this time and most certainly do not take art requests. Thankyou.

Coming along slowly. I was really hoping to have this done by now, but I should have it finished before holidays are over!

Anonymous said: What is your favorite art form to practice? (Painting, sketching, etc)

I love sketching and drawing, usually in pen but sometimes pencil (graphite and coloured). My next favourite medium would be drawing digitally.
Painting is at the bottom of the list. Too time consuming (on-off), expensive and messy. Other mediums such as 3D artwork, collages etc. I haven’t tried since I left high school. They didn’t really interest me!

I’m not interested in them personally. I wouldn’t say being interested in them is ‘special,’ a lot of people I know are interested in cars (my Dad and brother for example). They are interesting though, and old muscle cars are pretty cool!

Anonymous said: Are you truly half Aboriginal? You strongly support the expulsion of whites out of the Americas, Australia, New Zealand, and Africa?

Half Aboriginal? What no, only partly Aboriginal, a very small and minute amount. One of my Great, Great, Great Grandmothers (I don’t know how far back) was fully Aboriginal, so it would be there but quite negligible. I haven’t really asked my Dad or figured out the mathematics of how ‘Aboriginal’ I truly am. I don’t know where you got the half from as I’ve never said I was half Aboriginal, but I don’t how much for sure. To be honest, I don’t know an awful lot about my family tree in general but I’ve wanted to find out!
I also don’t really quite know what you mean by your second question; you’ve worded it in a way that it almost sounds like a statement but I’ve never mentioned it (nor actually thought about it) so I’m not going to answer that part.

I got High Distinctions for all four of my topics this semester! Hard work really does pay off. Now someone pass me the vodka!

I have a wolf skull version, why do you ask?

Anonymous said: I have one more year to go when I can get a tattoo But I was wondering if it would be okay if I used one of yours Ahh its okay if you say no x: I really love your art ^^

You’re more than welcome too, granted that you show me the finished product and the tattooist’s details and location upon completion (for my personal records). Thanks very much :)

Animation comparing 'Deceiver' with the new coloured version I’m working on (~25% completion).
Will update with proper comparisons when I’m finished :)

But… isn’t this fantastic, brilliant art piece finished?!?

I wish! It looks like it from a far but I’m only about 25% through it!

Getting some highlights in. Still a while to go yet!

Was practicing my Lion facepaint for a party. A little too orange for my liking but oh well.

Tree hoppers have worked their way to being some of my favourite invertebrates. So much diversity in shape and colour. They look like little Pokémon characters!
